EVE Comes To Consoles As An Online Shooter

CCP have today taken the wraps off Dust 514, a "hybrid MMO/FPS" that not only brings the world of EVE Online to consoles, but somehow ties the game to the PC MMO as well.

Apparently the game will "interact directly" with the PC title, allowing console gamers to manually fight out the battles for planets that are part of the larger MMO conflict.

It will do this by combining FPS and RTS mechanics. The game is being worked on by CCP Shanghai, and there'll be more details (including which platforms this is actually for) announced during CCP's big fan get-together in Reykjavik, Iceland in October.

So... if this is PS3 and 360, that means PS3 players will be able to fight against 360 players... and PC players too? But if it isn't for the PC then they can't really fight the PC players, only participate in a PC player's battle.. in which case the PS3 and 360 players won't be able to fight each other?

This is all very confusing. Unless you can fight everyone from your console of choice or PC, there's not a real connection with the Eve Universe, even if you insist it is.
